Je me souviens parfaitement de Vous, cher Monsieur, et serais on ne peut plus content de Vous revoir, — mais demain matin, le 12, je pars pour la Russie et ce n'est pas cette fois-ci que je pourrai profiter de Votre trop aimable offre.

Recevez donc l'expression de mes meilleurs sentiments et au revoir, j'espère!

Tout à Vous,

P. Tschaikowsky

London
11 April 1889

I remember you perfectly, dear Sir, and would be tremendously glad to see you again — but tomorrow morning, on the 12th, I am leaving for Russia, so it is not on this occasion that I can take up your all too kind offer.

Please accept my best regards until we meet again, I hope!

Yours sincerely,

P. Tchaikovsky
